Why I Am Not A Zionist.

In the discussion around the ongoing Arab-Israel conflict there are, depending on one’s perspective, good people and bad people.  If one is an anti-Semitic anti-Zionist the bad people are called “Zionists.”  These Zionists are thought to be an unusually horrid breed of people who hold nefarious intent toward Arabs and …

An Open Letter to Mahmoud Abbas.

Mr. Abbas, I am sorry to say, you have destroyed all hope of a Palestinian State under your leadership. You are in the 9th year of your four year term, and you have still failed to create change. You have stolen from the Palestinian public, amassing over $100 million dollars …

In the Arab-Muslim world they scream bloody murder on a daily basis that the Jewish minority is evil and must be destroyed.  Western “liberals” either …

Boycott Guinness!

Western European countries are generally not favorable toward Israel and among those countries few are quite as hateful as Ireland.  The reason for this is because the Irish see a rough equivalence between the English occupation of their island and the Jewish occupation of Israel.  It’s nonsense, of course, but …

Obama at the United Nations (Or, Déjà Vu All Over Again)

The very prospect of going through Obama’s recent speech at the United Nations is just simply depressing.  Nevertheless, let’s have at it. In the near term, America’s diplomatic efforts will focus on two particular issues: Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Iran clearly has nothing to fear …
